Rock climbing in Himachal Pradesh, India

When moving up, stay as close to the wall as you can, the closer your center of gravity is to the wall, the less your muscles have to work to hold you. When resting straighten your arms and lean back. Rely upon your legs more than your upper body strength. Your legs are much stronger than your arms so don't just try to act macho by pulling yourself up the wall, just stand up! Don't lean too far away from the wall when you are resting, when you are ready to continue it will just take more strength to pull your body back against the face.
